Expeditions with Patrick McMillan - A Friends of Panthertown Presentation

Classes & Lectures
Date: Thursday, August 13, 2020 07:30 PM


Emmy® Award-winning PBS television host to talk about Panthertown’s rare wetlands

CASHIERS, NC - Join Friends of Panthertown on Thursday, August 13 at 7:30 P.M. for an exciting webinar presentation given by PBS television host and naturalist Dr. Patrick McMillan, host of Expeditions with Patrick McMillan. 

Dr. McMillan is the Hilliard professor of environmental sustainability at Clemson University and is the director of the South Carolina Botanical Garden. His popular PBS television show is a public service program of Clemson University Cooperative Extension, produced in partnership with South Carolina Educational Television.

The bog in Panthertown lies along the headwaters of the East Fork of the Tuckasegee River, where fallen leaves steep tannins into the water for days before it finally trickles into the streams, staining the otherwise crystal-clear pools like tea. Rare plants grow both in the bog and on top of the granite domes, creating an environmentally diverse and interesting landscape. The bog supports several state-listed rare and endangered species including Timber Rattlesnake and Baltimore Checkerspot Butterflies.

You will be amazed by Patrick’s tales of exotic and fascinating discoveries awaiting around the Carolinas, in the rare high elevation mountain bogs of Panthertown Valley, and beyond. 

The online presentation will be followed by a Q&A session with Dr. McMillan. Limited tickets are available. Donations are encouraged ($5 suggested donation). For more information on any of their activities, to learn more about the bog in Panthertown, or to reserve tickets to the webinar, please visit or send an e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots.
